Once you have gotten all the information you need from the How To Buy Car Garage Plans articles, go ahead and head online to start your searching. In order to make sure you find the garage plans you want to build the garage you need, make use of one of the search engines and search for exactly the garage plans you want. What we mean by that is put as many descriptive terms in your search phrase as you can think of. That will help you narrow your search much more quickly. For example, if you want a two car garage that has a two bedroom apartment and is only a single story, but also has extra storage space, then try a search phrase like 'two car one story apartment garage plans 2 bedrooms storage'. If that doesn't seem to give you good results then try backing off a little and include fewer criteria in the search phrase. When we tried the search phrase 'two car one story apartment garage plans 2 bedrooms storage' we got marginal results and had to really dig a little before we found some sites that had what we searched for. So play around with your search terms some, add and eliminate characteristics like 'one story' or '2 bedrooms' and maybe try substituting numbers for words and vice-versa, ie '2 car garage plans' and 'two car garage plans'. Generally it's a good idea to avoid very generic search terms such as 'garage plans' because you won't get the results you want and you'll have to go back to the search engine and start over again. In Google you can try adding double quotes around your search terms like "three car garage plans" and that will narrow down the results to just those sites that use that exact phrase somewhere on the site, but you'll have to get a bit lucky finding an exact phrase that the sites may have matching what you are looking for. If you use the double quotes you are also blocking out any synonyms, so use it carefully. For instance, "two car garage plans" will ignore pages where '2 car garage plans' is the primary topic. Another trick you can try in Google is to add a plus sign, +, in front of a search word and it will include only that specific word in the search results.

Example: We tried 'apartment garage plans' and '+apartment garage plans'. The #1 search result for the 1st phrase didn't even show up on the 1st page of the search results for the second phrase. All of the other 1st page results for the 1st phrase did show up on page 1 of the search results for the second search phrase.
